How did your weekend go today?
I had a quick tour from Chandler’s Ford to Brambridge and had a rather enjoyable day.
If you want to know what I got up to today, read on.
Wedding Dress Festival at the Methodist Church
First I dragged my poor husband along to see the Wedding Dress Festival with me this morning at the Methodist Church.
More than 50 wedding dresses and bridesmaids dresses were on display, together with marriage certificates and precious wedding photographs.
You got to see the history of Chandler’s Ford through the wonderful display.
Chandler’s Ford historian Barbara Hillier, for example, has a table showing the wedding tradition of several generations in her family.
The display is still available tomorrow (Sunday) from 12pm to 5pm.
Brambridge Craft Market: near the goats
Brambridge Craft Market is one of my favourite local craft markets.
Today the signposting to the craft fair was spot on: Near the goats.
I also met crafter Meryn French, and Alison Hackman from The Crafty Panda.
Chandler’s Ford honey
On our way back, we stopped over at Bay Leaves Larder on Hiltingbury Road.
My husband bought a jar of Hampshire Honey (£6.75), made by Hugh Sykes from Lakewood Road in Chandler’s Ford.
I wonder why he needed yet another honey, as we have got Eastleigh honey, Fairtrade honey, and also some honey from France.
He told me he just loves having a wide variety of honey.
Girlguiding annual summer fete
Girlguiding Chandler’s Ford held its annual summer fete at St. Boniface Church on Hursley Road.
It was such a popular event – cream teas, raffle, and games. Fantastic atmosphere.
